I mentioned earlier this month that I was so excited about attending Bloggy Boot Camp Dallas this year. My friend Tara from A Spectacled Owl and I made flight and hotel arrangements to attend months ago. It seemed like it couldn’t come fast enough and now I can’t believe it’s already over.
Here is a selfie Tara and I took while waiting to board our plane at LAX.
I must say, this conference exceeded my expectations. Tiffany Romero and Fancesca Banducci from the SITS Girls are the two amazing women responsible for putting the conference together. The sponsors, food, accommodations at the Double Tree Hilton, and the speakers were fantastic. Some of the sponsors we got to meet were Mirassou Winery, Invisalign, and LG. There was also a fantastic line up of speakers. Two speakers who really resonated with me were Danielle Smith from Extraordinary Mom and Lisa Leonard from Lisa Leonard Designs.
I took good notes!
And thank goodness for Sugar Wish… I may have possibly OD’d on Red Hots. By the way, you HAVE to check them out. It’s an adorable way to send an e-card and candy to a loved one. So cute!
This is one of my friends Jamie from Hands On As We Grow. We had met a year ago and BBC brought us together!
This is a photo of some bloggers that I have been dying to meet in person from a group I am proud to be a part of. From top to bottom, left to right we are: Megan Sheakoski, Amy Locurto, Randi Dukes, Holly Homer, Carolyn Elbert, Kelly Dixon, Me, and Jamie Reimer. Finally meeting this group of talented bloggers in person and REALLY getting to know Tara were probably the highlights of my trip.
Learned and talking about blogging, SEO, social media, photography, and “juggling” it all among like-minded and well-respected women in the industry at a conference like Bloggy Bootcamp, I must say, is definitely one of the many rewards and highlights of blogging.
